In memoriam: Marilyn Kass

Marilyn Kass, aka Momo, passed away last night after a long battle with breast cancer.  She has been an inspiration to many of us.  The humorous picture above was from a recent adventure in horseback riding.  Here's the message she has had on her blog--subtitled, "Breast cancer--It's amazing what you can get used to."

Thanks for checking out my blog. For those of you dealing with cancer directly or indirectly we’re in it together. This journey has more ups, downs and surprises than a roller coaster. Hang on. Breath. Wherever you are, it’s temporary.  Relish the good times when they come and have faith when the crappy times roll along that they too are only temporary.

Lean on your friends and family. Seek out folks who want to help and let them. It will make them feel good. When you are negotiating for an upgrade or waiting in line, tell the folks across the counter that you have cancer. It just might get you a better seat. Then, forget about it as much as possible. Try to win with the cards you’ve been dealt and bluff if it helps.

Email any time I love hearing from you.
